Tick Bite

I was grooming my mare and noticed she has a big lump with two ticks on it. The ticks are right next to each other and the lump is about the size of a quarter.
Do I need to buy any antibiotics or anything? She seems to feel fine and the lump isn't sore.

I assume you pulled them off. Just treat like you would a cut...wash with soap/betadine and you can out some neosporin/swat on it.

That's what I did. Going to buy some Equi Spot first thing tomorrow!

Some horses can be slightly allergic to ticks and it causes more of a welt than others-- our mares that way and so am I.

If we get ticks I get them off and just squish them. It will go down on its own.
